Pay Marketers’ Subsidy Claims To Avoid Fuel Scarcity – Mr. Obafemi Olawore

The Executive Secretary of Major Oil Marketers Association of Nigeria, Mr. Obafemi Olawore, has pleaded with the Federal Government to pay marketers’ subsidy claims to avoid fuel scarcity.
Mr. Olawore made the plea in an interview with newsmen today in Lagos, claiming that the outstanding subsidy claims stood at Fifty-three point Six Billion Naira.
Mr. Olawore also advised the Petroleum Products Pricing Regulatory Agency (PPPRA) to start importation of second quarter allocation of petroleum to avoid fuel crisis.
He alleged that the Forty-one Billion Naira that was recently paid to marketers did not reflect the total arrears owed marketers to date.
He promised that the association would ensure total support for government in ensuring a robust petroleum distribution across the country if the association’s plea was taken seriously.
Reports have it that in spite of Seventy-seven thousand metric tonnes of petrol distributed by the association during the Easter break, some major oil marketers’ retail outlets in Lagos still sell petrol at One hundred Naira per litre.
